Continuing the Theme of the Prophet Micah

The Persian Sufi Bayazid does not quote the Prophet Micah. Nonetheless, his words reflect the same meaning, and encourage us to live with generosity, compassion, and humility.

The Friend of God has these three qualities:
a generosity like that of the ocean,
a compassion like that of the sun, and
a humility like that of the earth.

– Bayazid

Generosity of ocean and moonlight
